Con-Way Freight absolutely does

have driver-facing cameras recording at all times.

The cameras only save the video if a serious event triggers the device. It saves 4 seconds prior and 8 seconds after an event. That's actually a long time in accident terms. You see what the driver was up to before and then you see what happened during.

It is both a teaching tool and somewhat invasive. I triggered one once when I had to stop suddenly at a traffic light. It was still blinking when I stopped and I just looked right at the camera and shrugged, "Light changed suddenly. I had to stop."

Old Dominion does not

and I heard they have said they never will. I would never say say never though.

I didn't know about the one minute rule. It might apply to us too. company drivers are governed at 62 so it's kinda hard to speed most places. Anywhere the speed limit is lower than that I try to keep my speed 1-2 miles under if I can to compensate for downgrades. Cruise control really helps with that too!

I think when Errol said "over speed" he meant going over the company speed limit of 67mph (for company drivers anyways--for lease ops it's higher). At Swift 68 is overspeeding and 72 is excessively overspeeding. At Swift the camera will not turn on for going over the legal speed limit--maybe if you were doing like 50 in a 25 it would, but as far as I know it doesn't.

But this is Swift not TransAm. I have no idea how it works there.

Trust me. You will end up going down a long hill and everyone going at basically the same speed. Then the GPS lady will say "You are over speeding." You won't be on candid camera yet, but the demon of speed has snuck into your truck. At night, you'll never know you're speeding unless you look at the speedometer.

Western Express does NOT have cameras in their trucks. According to 2 recruiters I spoke with a few weeks ago.

I have been with PAM Transport as a rookie driver for just over 2 months now and they don't have any cameras as far as I can tell.

WEL Companies does in some of their trucks. It was optional on the 2015 but mandatory on anything newer or who safety deemed necessary
